Do not be ashamed
Romans 10:11 Scripture says, “The one who believes in him will never be put to shame.”- Isaiah 2 8:16 (ERV) Anyone who trusts in that rock will not be disappointed.
We should never be ashamed of being in recovery. One of my biggest problems in recovery has been the number of people who come to me to share with me confidentially a struggle they have overcome in life with God’s help.
Maybe I am too much the other way, to open. Who knows? I believe that God rescues us all for a purpose. I believe a part of that purpose for all of us is to find a way to share with other and encourage them.
There is a cliché I learned in A.A. many years ago and I believe it still. “If you want to keep it you have to give it away.”
The process of learning and applying the Twelve Steps to everyday living is ‘Service to Others’ You don’t get there by keeping it to yourself.
